Top 50 wonderkids in world football ranked including Man Utd, Man City and Arsenal stars

Top 50 wonderkids in world football ranked including Man Utd, Man City and Arsenal stars

Who has made the list?

The top 50 wonderkids in world football have been ranked with a number of Premier League stars included in the list.

There were several breakthrough youngsters that impressed last season and are just at the start of their journey at some of the biggest clubs in the world.

The Premier League has long been a breeding ground for young talent with the biggest clubs attracting the top scouts who possess the ability to unearth the next big stars.

England's current crop of internationals are living proof of that, but it's clubs' ability to spot wonderkids from abroad that's also impressive.

Now, a list compiled by Instagram account Wonderkids has recently been put together ranking the top 50 footballers born from 2005 onwards, and it's unsurprising that players from some Premier League giants appear.

Manchester United have a decorated history of producing talented academy players and it's their latest prospect Kobbie Mainoo who ranks in sixth place, the highest of anyone playing in England.

He scored what turned out to be the winning goal in the FA Cup final and his form earned him a place in England's 26-man senior squad for Euro 2024.

United's rivals Manchester City also have a player in the top 15 with Claudio Echeverri placing 12th.

Having only joined the club in January the Argentine is yet to make an appearance for Pep Guardiola's side having been loaned back to his boyhood River Plate.

Arsenal's Chido Obi-Martin also makes the list being ranked at 38. Given he's only 16 it's an incredible achievement, but he could be about to leave North London having rejected a scholarship extension offer.

As for the top three, PSG's Warren Zaire-Emery places third having impressed in France and currently pushing for a starting place with the giants.

Barcelona's Lamine Yamal comes in at second having establihsed himself as a key player for his club and the Spanish national team.

But first place goes to Endrick who will join Champions League winners Real Madrid in July from Palmeiras becoming the latest start to make the move from South America to Europe.
